My go-to place on the strand.

It's hard to find real value for money when you have 3 kids and just need a night off from cooking. My go-to relaxing meal with my family is the family pack at the Fish Inn. It feeds us all with perfect fish every time, with their stunning batter that you just do not find anywhere else. I often... read more

We travelled down from Ingham for the day and decided it would be nice to have dinner on the Strand. The service was fast and friendly, with the staff doing everything they could to make sure we were happy. The food was amazing and it was a lovely relaxing meal. Will definitely be back.

Visited 6 months ago, great venue overlooking the Rock pools-but, the chef/cooks clothing was dirty, tea towels hanging off their shoulders used to wipe hands, sweaty face then the plates! Heavy metal jewellery in ears, disgusting. 2nd time: it appeared things had changed for the better new staff etc. 3rd time last week, the chef/cook remains in dirty attire, tea... More

This is a fun little informal cafe - the view is great - the Fish is fresh and well prepared - the drinks are cold!

We have been to the Fish Inn 3 time over the last 8 months. The first time was after it first reopened for breakfast and while the food was average the service on that occasion was very disorganised. We put that down to new staff and moved on. The second time we thought we would give breakfast another chance and... More

Stopped in for a coffee and some ice cream for the kids while getting out of the summer sun. I ordered 2 mugs of flat white for the wife and I and 3 single scoops of ice cream for the kids. After being told the price I thought they had got my order wrong. Nope $12 for the lot. $3... More
